So, you know, Butthead -- when you're casting the Death Curse with the Elder Wand -- is it normal to get wood?

Dammit Beavis, you boner-popping pervert, it's not even normal to ask!

Wasn't he only in the first two books (until he showed up to help defend Hogwarts)?

"Boner-popping Pervert". I like it, it really gives a vivid mental image.

Most wanted animated avatar: endless loop of Beavis humping the couch (I think he does it during some video or another).

Little help?

Yes, that is very little help.
I have vague memories of a rapidly pumping Beavis. I just cant remember if it is the couch or just the air.

Pretty sure it's the upper corner of the couch. He jumps up there and just starts going at it.

Jo has revealed what became of some more characters, and also what the trio do for a living.

Cool, that's a little more satisfying than the epilogue alone!

Don't know if anyone has put this up, but it is a bloomin good source for Harry Potter stuff. At least until the new book that JK Rowling is rumoured to be writing comes out.

I have visited the Lexicon virtually every day for the last 2 years. I love it.

I'm especially fond of the reading guides for the books, and the character pages. Steve is a veritable goldmine of Potter information.

First time I managed to get a look at it, and think it is probably in the top 5 of Potter sites.

I can't wait for when he puts up the extra stuff gained from the Deathly Hallows.

So, like Ron is hideous looking. Plus he doesn't wow anyone with any remarkable qualities.

WTF is he doing at the end with Hermione? She totally should have run off with Krum. No way she ends up with Weasley, even in a fairy tail.
La la la la la.

Part two of this excellent interview is now available. In this clip, Jo reveals, amongst other things, the sentence she had originally intended to be the last in the series -- the one ending with "scar".

Further to this, EW has conducted an interview with Dan Radcliffe where he talks about his thoughts on the book, and other interesting stuff.

Ehm, yeah. I'm seeing the movie again tomorrow, so that might come in a day or two. I won't have a complete book summary up until I read it again, so that could take a week or so. As for Ebertfest... I'm not promising anything. I've done about half of it (back in May), but I have no idea when I'll finish it. It's just so much easier not to.
